I'd like to think that the purpose of this site is to actually meet one another face to face and learn about each other the old fashioned way. But if the pictures aren't enough to strike your fancy, then maybe all of this rambling below might.
The outside is where I prefer to be: running, cycling, playing chess, gardening, tennis, baseball, swimming, camping/hiking. I like to stay in shape and keep my body moving. I spend a lot of time in my backyard. cafes are nice too. bars and clubs are fun from time to time, but I prefer to drink and dance on a porch or stoop with friends.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles but escaped to the midwest when I was eighteen. I've lived in Spain and Mexico for business and pleasure and moved to Texas for work, stayed for more school. I've tried hard not to let it consume my life. It has been a struggle, but so far so good. I would wager that half of my student loans have been spent on traveling, eating out, and buying rounds for my friends.
I'm a realist and an aspiring optimist. I'm open to discussing pretty much anything: religion, mountain climbing, science and music...I enjoy stressing the limits of my comfort zone.
I hope this site will make it easier to meet new people with similar outlooks on life. I'd like to think that I'm a good friend, and I do my best to treat those around me with respect and compassion.
If you've made it this far, my name is Danny. Nice to make your electronic acquaintance
